Discount for combined entry to Bury St Edmunds and Sudbury events

In October 2018, South Suffolk Leisure (organisers of WOW Sudbury) merged with Abbeycroft Leisure (organisers of WOW Bury) which means we can now offer a 25% discount off the full adult price when you opt in to take part in both rides.

If you’d like to sign up for both we will be in touch regarding your desired distances. Please note WOW Sudbury takes place on Sunday 21 July and offers 20 and 50-mile routes.
